2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour on tap at HopCat, clear orange-red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of toasted malt, bread, some caramel, toffee into a bit of earth, grass, herbal hops with a touch of grainy husk. Taste was a mix of caramel, bread, toast into some dough, red fruit, some caramel, slight orange, finishing with some grass, slightly bitter.

Poured an amber color with aromas if bread, malt and caramel, light off putting aroma. Flavors match the aromas not good, can’t finish this not worth it. Sad because some of the beers from these guys are good. Maybe an off can need to revisit?

Pours a light amber with a light white head. Aroma is caramel and bread malts, and the flavor is pretty similar. There is a little bit of bitterness. Decent.

Racking up des Airline elite status and hotel status makes me wonder why breweries don’t do that. Anyways this can pours amber, off white head that reduces to a foam cap and leaves plenty of lacing. Nose has elements of malt, toast, and pine. Taste follows, mild bitterness. Some drying and grass linger. Overall not too shabby, but nothing to write home about, unless it gives me elite status points.

Slightly tart aroma, pours reddish amber with a large off white head. There’s a slight tartness to the beer, which is not to style. I can pick up some bready malts at the beginning, then the tartness comes in for the finish. I’m not sure if this is an infected bottle, or if they were aiming for this flavor.

Nose is pretty malt forward all the way. All this caramel, biscuits, cracker, breads and whatnot. Flavor is similar but approaching a touch of some stale caramels. Sweet and a little cloying.
